We had our engagement party here and all the staff worked really hard to make sure we had a great night. We had a custom made cocktail that was advertised so all the guests knew what was on offer. The drinks were spot on. Can't recommend this enough! Thanks and see you again!! Visited House of Tippler on 2017-11-18

This was my birthday celebration and a follow on from an earlier summer birthday celebration for my son's at House of Tippler. Both events went fabulously, with all our family and friends thoroughly enjoying the vibe, the great service ( especially from George, our waiter), the jerk chicken and the music. House of Tippler defiantly delivered all that I wanted for my birthday party. Visited House of Tippler on 2017-09-02

The House of Tippler is the perfect venue for a party. It is a little bit quirky and unique with a great atmosphere. It has a powerful sound system and is set up for visiting DJs. The garden at the back and the space to sit outside at the front is an added bonus- I don't remember feeling too hot despite the energetic dancing! Tim the manager was very helpful in planning the party and made good suggestions about food /drinks etc. I appreciated his relaxed and reassuring manner. All the staff were very accommodating and efficient on the night. We were pleased with the variety of canapés and felt.we had gotten good value for money. We really had a fun evening with all our friends and I would whole heartedly recommend the House of Tippler in general and as a venue. Visited House of Tippler on 2017-08-27

Tim worked with me to have a bespoke menu. The jerk chicken was fantastic and got serious compliments from my guests. Mark, the DJ played some of the best reggae n old revival tunes that we have not heard for ages. All my guests loved the vibes n didn't want to leave. George, our waiter, so loved the whole evening with us n one of my guest wanted to take him home! Great food, great music and a great vibe. Everyone wanted a repeat night.

I'd read great reviews of this place but was disappointed. The food and drinks were good but service very poor - table service was slow and our food order was messed up but no apology. Wouldn't visit again. Visited House of Tippler on 2017-06-03

We had the roast beef after reading good reviews. The beef was dry and over done even though I asked for medium, hardly any veg on the smallish plate, very slow servic. We ordered a brownie ice cream but decided to leave it after waiting for ages .. Visited House of Tippler on 2017-03-26

Appalling service by Caroline. This particular barstaff was abrupt, rude, unaccomdating, difficult, brisk and generally unhelpful from first point of contact. Caroline needs retraining and is unsuitable for the role. The service was rushed, we hadn't even sat down, Caroline was pushing for orders, the food was scase, cold, tasteless and unedible. We had to send it back to the chef. Seated by the front door with constant breeze and wind coming in. The place was too noisy. We exited early and went to an award winning establishment just down the road. Don't waste your money drinking or eating here as you will be severely disappointed. No stars and thumbs down Visited House of Tippler on 2017-01-28

Top marks for House of Tippler. I had my 40th party there on Saturday night; staff were very friendly and flexible. Food was great and I was on margaritas all night. Very relaxed atmosphere. I can't fault the place. I was back the next day for lunch and more margaritas. Definitely going back.
